    I don't get it. The economy was terrible under FDR but he gets a "hey at least you tried" award but Ronald Reagan was president over a good economy. He gets called the worst ever? Makes no sense at all.

    There are other measures of ability of a president than the economy. Reagan grew the deficit at an unheard of rate, and then of course there is Iran-Contra. I do not think that is enough to make him worst, but I think that makes the point clear.

    I think my pick would have to be Carter, if just because he was such a disappointment. He was of my party, and we had high hopes for him, but ended up being incredibly ineffective.

    Reagan was good. I think there were a lot of shady dealings in his time though, and it takes away. But nothing so overt and in defiance of the Constitution as what FDR pulled off. That guy is amongst the worst of our Presidents ever.

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the ass hole responsible for giving our country's money over to private banks.

    Then again, GW Bush wasn't a 20th Century president.

    Nor was he the worst president of the 21st Century. Both Clinton and the Messiah were worse than him.

    Of course.

    Reagan led the recovery from Carter's Disaster Area, whupped the Soviet Union without a major war, and showed the nation that socialism isn't necessary.

    Naturally the Left hates him unreservedly.
